It’s not the working poor or the borderless billionaire that brought us Trump The Terrifying. It’s the brand conscious, material driven, and delusional American Dream believing middle class that handed “democracy” over to a déclassé huckster of hyperbole and get it for ya wholesale incompetence.
An oligarchic and authoritarian state tries to weaken the governing “institutions” of a competing representative democratic nation. The latter responds to this threat by conjuring up an “ad hoc” entity to push back against the attack. Thus tacitly admitting the weakness of the republic’s proscribed and standing devices designed to protect the Union.
